1. Arnold Palmer Hospital created a plan for its new facility using different variables, layouts, drawings, simulations and a massive planning process. The variables that Arnold Palmer Hospital needs to consider for its layout design are as follows: Security is one of the components that the hospital needs to consider as of how to protect their patients (especially babies). while talking about patients as they are the first priority would need nursing anytime so nursing efficiency it is important for the nurses for not to spend time traveling around the facility. Also Meal and supply efficiencies is a factor to consider because the food have to be delivered warm and on time. Need to have much space for family members and visitors to come and stay with the patient. Privacy is a very important variable because this can give to the patients the serenity and peace they need. Location, x-ray, laboratories, management, pharmacy and much other factor like them must have a specific place in the layout and finally incorporate areas for medical and non-medical personnel.

2. The advantages of the circular pod design over the traditional linear hallway layout are that it is much easier for the nurses to see and reach each room, this means that the travel time for nurses will be minimized, but not only will save time, will give more medical efficiency for doctors and staff in general. In addition, the circular pod system can supply two rooms at the same time and this is something that the traditional linear hallway is limited.

3. The total distance traveled for a nurse (Thomas Smith) during the day. He makes 6 round trips to each of the 12 patient rooms, 20 to medical supply, 5 break room and 12 to linen supply, his total distance in feet will be : 6 trips x 2 (round trip) x 2 x(20+30+40+50+60+70) + 20 trips medical supply x 2 x 50 + 5 trips break room x 2 x 40 + 12 trips…...

Out with the Old in with the New

...Out with the old, in with the new Admit it, we’ve all had that first love; the guy who could do no wrong. He’d lie to us and cheat on us but we still thought he was an angel sent from above. We would take his crap just because we thought that’s what love was and poor little us, we didn’t know any better. Then one terrible day, he throws out the words “It’s not you, it’s me”. After that you told yourself you’d never love another man again; how could you? He had taken your heart and ripped it in two! Being the drama queen you are you probably lay in bed for a couple days eating Blue Bunny pumpkin spice pecan ice cream with that special little spoon you kept hidden in the corner of the drawer, sobbing your little broken heart out. You read in some Cosmo magazine that there are seven stages of a breakup. First comes shock; like did he really just do that? Then comes Denial; No way did he just do that. Nope I don’t think so. After that comes Isolation; which is where we just were with you in your bed. But just wait for it girl, because next is anger, and that’s the fun stage. That’s where you take all of his shit he gave you; hoodies, sweats, shirts, that little diamond necklace with the heart in the middle…trash it all. For the fifth stage we regress into the “What will it take to get him back stage”. This is your most creative point in time, so if you have a paper due for English class get to writing because right now you’re on fire. Sixth, we head into the deep...

Arnold Schwarzenegger

...Arnold Schwarzenegger is a renowned person who is regarded as a famous actor, politician and most importantly, an ecologist who concerns about climate change. He is a fervent supporter of environmental protection who makes a genuine effort to fight against global warming. Arnold has voiced his worries over the changing climatic pattern in the world as it will cause different disasters including droughts and floods, which put our citizens’ lives and different economic activities in jeopardy. He, therefore, took the lead to sign the first state law limiting the level of greenhouse gases emission when he was a governor of California. He mentioned in his speech, “The UN can’t work alone, but together, we can!” (R20 regions of climate change, 2013). This is his way to persuade people to take actions together so that a bigger effectiveness can be achieved. He also convinces all people to take action because he thinks that climate change is caused by human activities to a certain extent. Therefore, all people in the world are obliged to protect the earth to prevent the problem from deteriorating and to compensate for what they have done. In addition, he cooperated with different local governments around the world by organizing a non-profit organization R2O which aims to carry out funding projects such as renewable energy projects to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. He believed that this can improve the energy efficiency of the world and it is a......

Arnold

... Schwarzenegger mentions the two Americas: “Now, the other party says that we have two Americas.” (l. 34, p. 2) By “two Americas”, the Democrats is referring to the big gap there is between rich and poor in America. They look upon it as there is one America for the privileged and the wealthy and one for the poor on the bottom of society. But Schwarzenegger rejects this, and instead he says something very unifying: “I have visited our military hospitals. And I tell you this, that our men and women in uniform, do not believe there are two Americas. They believe we are one America, and they are fighting for it.” (l. 37, p. 3). This is also pathos-appeal because Schwarzenegger really speaks to the national feeling of his audience by putting it as “we are all in this together”. Also, the speech contains some ethos-appeal: Schwarzenegger is referring to George W. Bush and praising him, which was pointed out earlier in the analysis. He includes the president in his speech and in that way refers to an authority, which makes him look serious and reliable.

Arnold Palmer

...OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES AT ARNOLD PALMER HOSPITAL Question 1 Arnold Palmer Hospital exists due to its customers who are the patients. Knowing the customers' expectations is very important for improving the hospital's services because as part of the total quality management at the hospital where process of continuous improvement, there is always room for improvement and perfection. If patient(s) is or are disgruntled by any service(s), the hospital should be thinking about ways to improve their process. Further, a patient's assessment enables the hospital to know whether their services would be recommended to others as word of mouth is the best advertising. Also, patients will not have the expertise to judge the quality of health care they received, if and only if, they have not been provided with the detailed information on their health problems and the corresponding medical diagnosis/treatments. This is why all discharged patients are sent a detailed survey form involving strategic areas at Arnold Palmer Hospital two weeks after discharge such as; satisfaction by the patient, respect given by the employee, quality of care, access to information by patients, quality of medical staff, coordinated care, if they received education needed concerning the area of patients concern and the quality of discharge information given to the patients.
